When I got to Connecticut last week to start my vacation, everybody’s lawns were brown. “We need rain” was the common refrain. “It’s been so dry. If only we could get a good, steady drenching.”
I remember thinking, How about a good, steady drenching after I go back to California?
Apparently, I’ve been punished for my selfishness. It rained on Saturday. It rained on Sunday. It rained a little bit yesterday. It rained hard and long today. The lawns are have gone from this…
Okay, I’m exaggerating, but still. Enough already with the wet stuff. I tried to take a walk this afternoon and got soaked. We planned a barbecue tonight and it got canceled. The good news is I’ve been able to get some writing done without feeling as if I’m missing something in the great outdoors. In fact, rain is the perfect backdrop for an author with a book deadline.
I take back what I said about the rain. Let it pour.
